"IN THE WORLD, BUT NOT OF THE WORLD."
THE CHOSEN OF GOD

DELIVERED BY APOSTLE MARION JOHNSON, JR. ON SUNDAY, 19 JANUARY 2003

     If you know Christ, it is because Christ knew you first! And maybe some of you at this point have not let your faith go to the mark that you know that Christ knows you.

     In St. John 15:16, Jesus said, "Ye have not chosen me." Some of you think that you're here because you have chosen God, but I'm here to let you know that the only reason why you're sitting (or standing) where you are is because Christ has chosen you.

     How many of you know that you've been chosen by God? How many of you know that you are "in the world, but not of the world?" You might fool me, but you can't fool God. How many of you want a new citizenship? Citizenship carries with it governance. You can't be a citizen of the US and not obey the laws of the US. If you're a citizen of Heaven, you've got to obey the laws of Heaven. You are the elect of God! In St. John 10: 28-30, Jesus said, "Those whom God has given unto me, no man can pluck them from out of my hand."
